Where to buy the cheapest iPhone 14 in the world?
iPhone 14 is Apple’s flagship phone model, and it has also been rated as the best mobile device on the market. Popular for a long time, of course Apple products have never been cheap.
With a selling price of around $799 before taxes, it’s rare to see Apple offering any kind of discount. For many people, the iPhone is a luxury item, and buying any Apple product requires careful cost consideration.
Android Authority has done an interesting study: find out which country outside the US can buy the cheapest and most expensive iPhone 14.
This comparison is based on the purchase price of the iPhone 14 from the Apple Store or official distributor in each country. There will be many suppliers that offer iPhone 14 globally, and there are places to sell at a cheaper price, but the search will focus on the store that displays the official selling price.
The United States is one of the countries where the iPhone 14 is cheap, but it is not the cheapest. The largest countries are Australia, China and South Korea.
The original iPhone 14 retails for $799 (VND 18.7 million) in the United States before taxes. When purchased on Apple’s website, the price is actually $829.
If you’re a US citizen, sales tax will vary from state to state, but the final price you’ll pay ranges from $875 to $920.
According to the website The Mac Index, which compares iPhone 14 prices in each country, then eliminates sales tax and converts the price to US dollars, the cheapest place in the world to buy the iPhone 14 is Australia. The price of this phone is less than 848 USD (19.9 million VND).
China and South Korea follow closely, with Apple’s flagship phones priced at $857 and $858, respectively. Japan is also among the cheapest places in the US, although it’s only about $10-$20 less.
At the other end of the scale, the most expensive places in the world to buy the iPhone 14 are Brazil and Turkey. While phones in most regions are priced between $900 and $1,100, Apple fans in those two countries are paying more than $1,500.
More precisely, Brazilians have to spend an exorbitant amount of $ 1,521 (35.6 million Vietnamese dong), which makes them consider some better iPhone 14 alternatives. In comparison, the purchase price of the iPhone 14 in Brazil is twice as high as in Vietnam.
In Vietnam, the selling price of the iPhone 14 is also very cheap compared to many countries around the world. In retail chains such as Mobile Vietnam, CellphoneS and Mobile World, the selling price of the iPhone 14 alone ranges from 18.4 million to more than 19 million dong for the 128 GB version.
The price of the current iPhone 14 has also fallen to the lowest level since the launch of this phone model, even as cheap as the iPhone 13 3 months ago. Therefore, iPhone 14 has the best price and is worth buying today.
Should I buy an iPhone from another country?
If you are a citizen of Turkey and Brazil, you should probably buy iPhone 14 abroad for the best price. But if you’re a US citizen, going abroad to buy a phone won’t save you much.
If you are taking a trip to one of the countries where the iPhone 14 is cheaper, you can save a significant amount of money when you buy it there.
But the data shows that the United States is one of the cheapest places in the world to buy the iPhone 14. Therefore, if you are a US citizen, the cost of traveling to any country to buy the device at a lower price will also be the same. You don’t save much.
Taxes are one of the main reasons why the iPhone 14 is cheaper in some countries and more expensive in others. Sales tax and import tax will be factored into pricing the phones to ensure Apple remains profitable.
Since the above comparison is based on the US dollar, the exchange rate is also a factor to consider.
In addition, the retail price of the phone is determined in each country before the launch of the phone in September 2022.
Since then, and especially during these tough economic times, the value of each country’s currency can fluctuate wildly against the dollar. Therefore, there will be a lot of confusion in the ranking of the cheapest iPhone selling countries.
Apple is not available in all countries, so some retailers add extra costs to the final price, making the selling price higher than the company’s suggested price.
